ACLJ: Delay in seating Brown “outrageous”

by D. Bennett

Jay Sekulow, via his blog on the American Center for Law and Justice’s website, posts that the fact that Scott Brown (R-MA) has yet to be seated by the U.S. Senate represents an “unacceptable delay tactic on the part of the Senate leadership.”

“There’s absolutely no reason to wait to seat Senator-elect Brown and with each passing day he is prevented from participating in the legislative process,” Sekulow writes. ” This delay tactic…show that it’s business as usual in Washington – ignoring the will of Massachusetts voters and moving forward with a disturbing health care plan that America simply does not want.”

Despite the fact that the election results have not yet been officially certified, Sekulow argues that there is precedent which would allow Brown to be seated immediately.
